Those seeking to enhance their business cards with a distinctive look can choose from a diverse range of specialty printing techniques. Due to its versatility, impact and affordability, Full Color Spot UV business cards are one of the more popular cards along with our Spot UV postcards.

What is Spot UV?

You may be surprised to learn that Spot UV printing isn’t actually a printing technique at all, but rather a method for coating printed products. While Spot UV may sound futuristic, it is a relatively simple process. The “UV” portion of Spot UV printing involves using UV light for curing a varnish placed on the printed material. Although printers can utilize this method on white paper or card stock, it is most effectively on color-printed products to enhance product shine, protect its color, and keep moisture and damage out in order to preserve the product. 

Due to its lack of volatility, Spot UV printing is known for being environmentally friendly. This means that little or no varnish becomes a gas that can escape into open air.

With different techniques, printers can create different results in Spot UV printing. Spot UV printing works best with heavier card stock, so it is most commonly utilized for premium business cards or printed flyers. The “spot” part of Spot UV printing refers to the ability to apply this technique to only parts of a page if desired; it is mainly used for its decorative effect. Because Spot UV printing can deepen the color of areas it’s applied to, this property should be weighed during the design of a product.

At Primo Print, we have created a tutorial that will walk you through the process of setting up your mask files. You can always contact one of our customer service representatives with questions or feel free to view our FAQ section.

Many small and local businesses wonder what the best method is for finding new customers and getting the word out about their products or services. Today, business owners are utilizing the power of the internet; some prefer face to face marketing, and others use local mail.

All of the methods have their own pros and cons; they are all different when it comes down to how much money is spent and the effort required for each marketing campaign. 

One option which has seen a recent uptick is usage is direct mail, specifically Every Door Direct Mail® (EDDM®), a service offered by the U.S. Postal Service®.

EDDM®’s popularity lies in its simple use and ability to reach far: no specific addresses are needed to be collected by the business for the postcard to be sent out. A local business simply selects a zip code, address area, or mail route, and provides the necessary EDDM® postcards to the post office.  

Then, the USPS® will deliver every piece of mail supplied to the specified EDDM® route. Business mailings must include at least 200 mail pieces and can’t exceed 5,000 per day.

One of best aspects of Every Door Direct Mail® is the flexibility, as advertisements mailed can include a variety of messages. However, they must meet the size requirements. Some great examples of how businesses are using EDDM® include coupons, menus, grand opening announcements, general announcements, giveaways, contests and many more. 

EDDM® is cost effective, with prices starting as low as 16 cents per piece of mail, depending on the size and route chosen. 

New: Full Service EDDM®

At Primo Print, we are excited to offer Full Service EDDM® along with our Print Only service. By selecting full service EDDM®, you can send high quality postcards from your computer to your customer’s mailbox for as little as 25 cents per home including postage!

We also offer design services to ensure that your EDDM® postcard grabs the attention of potential customers.

We offer custom postcards that fit the Postal Service’s specification for Every Door Direct Mail®. Once the customer provides the desired size and design, the postcards are created and delivered to the small business. 

Once the company has received the postcards, the next step is to drop them off at their local post office with the specified routes. Business owners can then sit back and watch as their postcard travels to exactly where they have assigned them too. Next – enjoy an increase of traffic to your business! 

As the internet becomes more and more widespread, many customers still choose to discover local businesses online. However, every home in the US has a mailbox, and paper mail is the easiest way to reach new customers. Research found that coupons received in the mail have a 35% redemption rate.

EDDM® expedites and simplifies this process, and is a fantastic tool for small and local businesses to reach potential customers. Contact us and learn more about how EDDM® can help your business.
